Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment invites applications from highly promising junior scholars to spend a paid semester or academic year as a full-time resident Visiting Scholar on either the Nicholas School’s main campus in Durham, NC or its marine lab campus in Beaufort, NC. Applications from distinguished senior scholars will also be considered. The ideal candidates will have strong research profiles and records of effective teaching and mentoring of students from diverse backgrounds. The Visiting Scholars will fully participate in the Nicholas School’s teaching and research activities, by teaching courses and/or leading seminars and workshops and collaborating with faculty on research projects. Appointments may begin with either the 2018 fall semester or the 2019 spring semester.

Committed to a culture of interdisciplinary collaboration, faculty in the Nicholas School include preeminent researchers and educators whose expertise spans the physical, life, and social sciences relating to the earth and the environment. We are seeking Visiting Scholars who can expand and enrich the intellectual and cultural climate of our school. Individual qualifications, academic excellence, collegiality, and demonstrated multicultural competence, rather than specific research expertise, will be the primary criteria for selecting Visiting Scholars. Successful applicants will be expected to engage collaboratively with faculty and to mentor students from a wide range of disciplines, cultures, and academic backgrounds in ways that support diversity and inclusion.

The Nicholas School administers educational programs at the undergraduate, professional master’s, and doctoral levels. The signature professional degrees, the Master of Environmental Management (campus-based and online) and the Master of Forestry degree, prepare students for leadership positions in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. Nicholas School faculty oversee doctoral degree programs in Environmental Science and Policy, Earth and Ocean Sciences, and Marine Science and Conservation, and participate in Duke University doctoral programs in Ecology, Environmental Policy, and Integrated Toxicology and Environmental Health. The School administers undergraduate majors in Environmental Sciences and Policy and in Earth and Ocean Sciences, as well as certificates in Energy and the Environment and Marine Science and Conservation Leadership.
